    Georges getting some love from the ESPN recruiting gurus. Think the article may be an insider only, but a pretty lengthy write-up nonetheless.

    Re: Georges getting some ESPN love

    Id like to see the rotation of White, Booker, Ejim (sometimes at the 4), Gibson, and Niang in the post.

    Thats alot of people rotating at the post. However, I have the feeling someone will transfer....

    Well with the line up we have, Raileys inability to do anything during playing time except commit fouls, and off court issues. He will either be a life long bench rider or a fast exit will come soon for a more capable center....

    Re: Georges getting some ESPN love

    Can't wait to see him play next year. I've never actually heard anyone say his name before (only read it in print). Does anyone know the correct pronounciation? Thanks!

    I always pronounced his last name "knee-ang" but I bet I'm wrong. His mom posts here sometimes. WHERE ARE YOU Miss Niang?

    That's what I think it is too. Eventually we won't be able to pronounce any of the players names at the rate of strange named players Hoiberg is bringing in haha.

    Re: Georges getting some ESPN love

    I heard Coach Hoiberg say his name on the call in show tonight. Pronounced like George knee-ANG - last syllable rhymes with this: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fr62AsA70Es"]Senor Chang[/ame]
